Our Story:
In January 2014, I started a distribution company for vegetables that are not regularly available here in Chennai. The idea was born out of my own frustration of not having access to a regular supply of salads and greens in the local markets. 

The fruits, flowers & vegetables that I offer are all farmed in India. They are 
grown in professionally managed farms, owned by my family, who have been in the business for the last 35 years. Only minimum quantities of approved pesticides are used responsibly whilst growing the vegetables. In other words, we take care to make sure there are no traces of fertilizers or chemicals on the products by the time they are harvested. Wherever appropriate, the produce is washed after harvesting, before packaging and shipping. The produce is also chilled on harvesting which ensures freshness for a longer period.

The vegetables & fruits are packed in standardized  bio-packs, and you will find the size and quantity of each pack mentioned on our website. Today we also sell cut-flowers.

Mashed Potatoes With Goat Cheese & Kale

Creamy mashed potatoes with extras built right in

I served this with Swedish meatballs and lingon berry jam.
Had no goat cheese, so I added gruyere cheese instead. The family loved it, with strong reccomendations to cook it again!
Servings: 8


2 Kg potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 large bunch kale, stems discarded, rinsed thoroughly of grit
1 cup whole milk
1 cup goat cheese, at room temperature (You can use other Cheese too)
salt, to taste


  1. Place potatoes in a large stockpot with and fill with water to cover. Salt well and bring to a boil. 
  2. Cook potatoes for 15-20 minutes or until fork-tender.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat in a large pan and saute the garlic and kale until tender, about 3-5 minutes, and set aside.
  4. Drain potatoes and return to pot. Mash with a potato masher, then add the milk gradually, mixing to incorporate. Do not overmash or you'll get gummy, flat potatoes.
  5. Stir in goat cheese and kale, add salt to taste and serve. Can be made a day ahead of time and reheated in a pot over low heat or in the oven.

Prep Time:  20 minutes Cooking Time: 40 minutes
